VICTORY LAP 5K + BE GREAT FOUNDATION

To increase the representation of minorities and individuals from low income families towards the development of and participation in engineering and technology based businesses and careers. BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color are twice as likely to be adversely impacted by the disruption of automation technologies such as artificial intelligence, autonomous devices, and the Internet of Things as counterparts of other races and cultures. Over 50% of all service based jobs are occupied by African Americans, though they only comprise 13% of the population in the United States. This disparity presents a mounting concern in an already wide gap in income, wealth, and economic opportunity.

Be Great Foundation Inc. was created to address such economic and opportunity disparities by advocating for STEM education, entrepreneurship and equity for underrepresented populations. Inspired by Nipsey Hussle, the purpose of the Victory Lap 5K is to raise funding to support students and entrepreneurs in our local community towards the progression and development of STEM careers in an effort to prepare individuals from underrepresented and marginalized populations to secure the jobs and create the businesses of the future.

The 5K portion of Victory Lap 5K was historically very costly and not very lucrative for the Be Great Foundation. For that reason we have taken the opportunity reimagine Victory Lap 5K to be more in line with our mission and work Victory Lap Walk & Community Day will still feature a communal walk of the course at Country Park. The Victory Walk will allow more inclusive participation.

With a theme of “What’s Your Victory?” this walk is for anyone who has been Victorious over something in your life this year. The Victory Walk will allow you to take a Victory Lap for anything for which you’ve been victorious this year. After the walk attendees will respond to the prompt “What’s your Victory?” and place their responses on the Victory Wall. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their Victory with other attendees on the stage after which all of our reimagined STEM related activities will take place.
